Andrew and Tori have known each other for almost 14 years – and for for much of that time, Andrew had a secret crush on Tori. They were friends throughout college, when finally at a holiday party, Andrew and Tori shared their first kiss. They already knew each other’s families, and everything developed quickly from that point on. They moved in together in Malden a few years later (where Andrew grew up) while Tori was getting her masters degree, and after football-obsessed Andrew got a job offer with the Texans, they packed up and moved to Houston! Their hearts and families were still in Boston, though, so they knew a downtown wedding was the way to go. The historic Fairmont Copley Plaza right in Back Bay was perfect – elegant, beautiful, exquisite!
They read their vows in private in the Boston Public Garden before heading over to the Boston Public Library for family + wedding party photos. Then it was off to the ceremony at the Fairmont, the big official kiss, and party timeeeee! Of course they had a giant spread of Modern Pastry Italian treats, a hoppin’ band, and the best fairytale night EVER!!!
Some special hidden details?
– Andrew wore Malden map cufflinks, a nod to where he grew up
– Tori wore her mom’s wedding ring to honor her memory
– Tori’s dad surprised her with her grandparents’ wedding topper to add to their cake
Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
